Meet Ed, Your Personal Cruise Director

Originally from the city of brotherly love, Philadelphia, Pa., Ed started his career as an on-air radio personality.  He enjoyed the job, but found himself yearning for more.   With a dynamic personality and excellent interpersonal skills, the move to sales was easy for Ed. Although he was successfully selling life
insurance, Ed still felt something else pulling.  It wasn't until he took a career in the exciting cruise industry that he felt he'd found his calling.

Beginning as a member of the cruise staff and working his way all the way up to Cruise Director, Ed always made sure the guests were having the time of their lives!  Looking to expand his talents in the world of cruising, he made the bold move to the Shore Excursions department.  After a good deal of hard work and a promotion to Shore Excursions Manager, Ed was given the priceless opportunity of seeing the world firsthand.

With over 14 years of experience traveling the globe, and his vast knowledge of the unique ports of call and exciting tour offerings, Ed is ready to share his unprecedented wealth of information and resources with you!  Through Ed Walsh and Vived Cruises, you not only have the benefit of a fully-licensed travel agent, but also your very own travel consultant and personal Cruise Director!


Letter from the "Ed-itor:"

Dear fellow travelers:

I would first like to thank you for spending your time learning more about myself and my company, Vived Cruises.  I can promise you that it will be time well spent, as my focus and drive in life revolves around experiencing the world and my love of travel, which I'd like to share with you.

I am not just selling cruises; I am selling the entire experience.  Booking a cruise is not just about choosing a date and a cabin from a deck plan.  I provide in-depth consultation and truly take pride in matching my clients with the right ship for them.

Over the past 14 years, I have had the pleasure of seeing the world from the deck of a cruise ship.   Working in various capacities, I've seen the industry grow and have followed the trends and changes.  As a member of the CLIA (Cruise Line International Association), I am privy to their 19 member cruise lines' breaking news and special offers, and I'm certified to help you choose the perfect vacation and get the most for your money.

My main goal is to live up to our motto.  As your Cruise Director, if I'm able to share with you my personal experiences and recommendations, send you on a voyage to discovery, and create in you a satisfied traveler, then I can proudly say that I'm "bringing the world to you!"

Thanks again for your time, and I look forward to working with you.


Ed Walsh
